Dear Departed

How much I wish to talk to you,

At this hour when the heart is heavy,

Of my day, my failures and pain

For you were the one to listen,

Though life doesn’t offer

A solution to every problems,

A solace your presence gave me,

Reassurance my hand you would hold

Whenever life gave  me a jolt .

Now where are you l try to find,

No trace you have left behind,

I grope in the dark ,stumbling,

To get just one spark of light.


What do you think?
